In the land of the MySQL council,  the IOUG has created a survey asking for community feedback on the future of the council and the IOUG’s programming for MySQL.  This is an excellent opportunity for us to shape how the largest independent user group supporting Oracle technologies helps our community grow and work with Oracle going forward.

As an example, I participated, as the the Chair of the MySQL Council, in a call with Luke Kowalski to talk about communicating with the community so as to avoid fomenting the FUD that our community has been plagued with for the last several years during the two acquisitions.  He has offered to
